Babouche

No.223

A cheerful yellow

Babouche takes its exotic name from the distinctive colour of the leather slippers worn by men in Morocco. It has a cheerful brightness that will intensify when used in large areas, but it is always dignified and never garish. Babouche can be paired with Railings for a very modern but sumptuous effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Babouche is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful colour I bought a tester pot of this for my hallway, which is north facing to cheer it up after being inspired by kit kempson to add a pop of yellow to a smaller space, it’s worked brilliantly. In the morning the depth of pigment in the paint gives a warm glow like sunlight is creeping on to it & in the evening even under electric light is quite lovely. It makes me smile every day I walk down the stairs. Incidentally it is the same shade of yellow in my bark cloth curtains which was an extra bonus. would definitely recommend this colour & also the coverage is very good. Looking forward to completing my hall with more accessories & a new radiator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Warm and bright. Have used as a feature wall in my teenage sons bedroom. Very pleased with the colour and as always the quality of the paint made it easy and gives a perfect finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour My son has just come back from Uni and I wanted to brighten up his room.. there was a face pulled when I said it was going to be yellow but we all love it. It did take four coats as we are in a new build but that didn’t matter as we had plenty there’s no smell so he could move right back into his room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright without being brash Used the gloss on a wooden interior kitchen door. Adds an injection of colour into an otherwise functional room. Side note: it compliments oak very well but causes debates with colourblind husband - he says it is orange!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's wonderful stuff! We bought Babouche estate emulsion to paint throughout our main living room. We gulped at the cost, but it's worth it. Beautiful colour, excellent coverage and gorgeous finish. We are delighted with it!
